The American city of New York wants to vaccinate tourists against Covid-19. Authorities will place mobile vaccination sites in “iconic locations” where they intend to administer the Janssen vaccine to anyone who wants a shot.


“New York is open for business, shot by shot,” Mayor Bill de Blasio wrote on Twitter. To be able to vaccinate tourists as well, the state must give permission. Now, in New York State, only people who live or work there are vaccinated.

De Blasio wants New York to be “fully opened” by July 1. The first steps have already been taken. More and more corona measures are being lifted.

For example, since the beginning of this week, the catering industry has received guests again, and metro’s are rerunning day and night. More rules will be relaxed later this month.

For some time a year ago, New York was the epicentre of the pandemic. Today, things are getting better in the metropolis. The number of infections in the city is steadily decreasing, while the vaccination campaign is proceeding rapidly.
